Scholarships are available to individuals from the Arrowhead region to participate in the 2015 Rural Arts and Culture Summit, which will held in Morris, MN on June 2 – 4, 2015. Scholarships will be awarded on a first come, first served basis. Carpooling is encouraged to allow as many people as possible to participate. Funding is made possible by the voters of Minnesota thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
This year’s theme is “From the Ground Up: Cultivating Creative People and Places.” The Summit will gather artists, art organizations, rural-centric organizations, and community and economic development leaders to learn about creative people and places that have built their stories “from the ground up.” People from across the state and country will gather to celebrate the imaginative and creative thinking that has helped to create vibrant small town cultures. For more information about the Summit and to register please go to their website: www.ruralartsandculturesummit.
